Education within Listen Up Music houses our collaborative Start Suicide First Aid training with LivingWorks Australia, which upskills people to have the confidence to help those in need. Start is a 90-minute online training program that prepares trainees with the skills to recognize when someone is having thoughts of suicide and respond to keep them safe.
Many people are surprised to learn that they’re far more likely to save a life with suicide intervention than with CPR. With increased anxiety and isolation as a result of COVID-19, suicide prevention skills are needed now more than ever.
Trainees can use their skills to keep family members, friends, and co-workers safe—even from a distance.
In 2021 there will be a host of other educational services added to our portfolio to further support musicians and music industry professionals.

Our Mental Health Music Course (MHMC) is a 3-hour, peer-reviewed, course designed to increase the attendee’s confidence in being able to support themselves, and the wider community, through mental health and/or wellbeing challenges.
Listen Up Music has specifically designed MHMC to be delivered in groups of roughly 10-20 people, and can be tailored to suit music industry professionals, corporate teams and school groups.
After completing the course the attendee will have an understanding of mental health and mental ill-health, safe language, self care strategies, problems that people may encounter, how to remove the stigma and tools and resources which help those in need.
